Packers vs Falcons: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis for Sunday Night's Game

Michael DulkaContributor IOctober 9, 2011

Final Score: 25-14 Packers 

The Green Bay Packers invade the Georgia Dome tonight as they take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football. Entering the matchup 4-0, the Packers look to remain unbeaten while the 2-2 Falcons attempt to get over the .500 mark for the first time season. 

A rematch of the divisional playoffs, the Falcons attempt to get their revenge after being thrashed 48-21 by the Packers. Aaron Rodgers put up one of the greatest individual playoff performance as he embarrassed the Falcons defense. 

Entering Week 5, the Packers are tied for first in the NFC North with also unbeaten Detroit Lions. The Falcons currently sit third in the NFC South trailing about the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  

While a win for the Packers would be nice and put more pressure on the Lions, a loss for the Falcons could be devastating to their playoff chances with the Saints and Bucs playing so well early on. This prime-time game should feature a playoff-like atmosphere. 

Will it be another MVP performance from Aaron Rodgers and a Packers blowout, or will the Falcons be able to get their first winning streak of the season going?
